🚀 Brilliant: Build problem solving skills
The best way to learn math and computer science
Looking to build problem solving and quantitative skills? If so, this week’s startup, Brilliant, is the platform for you.
⚾ The Elevator Pitch
AI won't take your job — someone using it will.
Problem solving and critical thinking are intangible skills that can set you up for success regardless which career path you head down. And it is this sort of creative thinking that AI can’t replicate. Brilliant makes it possible for you to level up your understanding of cutting-edge concepts like AI, neural networks, and data science in minutes a day.
Brilliant aims to be the best way to learn math and computer science. Their platform has thousands of quick, visual, hands-on lessons that make it easy (but not too easy) for anyone to build skills fast.

🔍 Why we like it
📈 A different kind of investment
Compared with other startups that we have featured in the past, Brilliant stands out with its unique service. It is an investment for its users, but not your standard monetary. Rather it’s an equally valuable investment in personal growth. Learning is a lifelong process, but unfortunately for many the active process of sitting down and learning new concepts stops after college or high school. Brilliant is an easy (but not too easy) way to challenge oneself intellectually and build new knowledge and skills that can set up for future success.
🤖 AI won’t take your job – someone using it will
AI won’t take over all of our jobs. Rather people who find ways to properly apply and scale AI will. Brilliant offers the resources for you to gain an edge. The skills and careers of tomorrow may look different from today, but the ability to critically think and approach difficult problems will always be in need.
🤩 Interactive and engaging problems
Brilliant has curated thousands of visual and hands-on lessons that can help you master concepts in as little time as 15 minutes everyday. Whether you want to explore computational biology or quantum computing, Brilliant has something for you.
